Yesterday, August 31st, was Phase 1 of the reintroduction of Blue Bell ice cream into the US markets. We happen to live in the (rabidly loyal) geographic area of Phase 1, so I asked Eric to drop by the HEB grocery store in Brenham to pick some up on his way home from a gig in Louisiana.

When he arrived at HEB, he found this:

sold out blue bell

As he took photos of the bare shelves (along with a throng of other people), he was approached by a news crew, which resulted in this:

Those of you that live in the Dallas Fort Worth area might have caught the clip. Isn’t he so cute???? Well, these empty shelves were after the third restocking of the day, apparently.

But my husband didn’t give up. First, he got me a consolation Route 44 Diet Cherry Limeade (a darn good consolation prize), then he went to two more stores. At the second, there was a Blue Bell delivery truck out front. As fast as the driver unloaded the ice cream into the cooler, it was being snatched up. When Eric reached, the cooler, it was down to this:

5 left at shell gas station--we took 2
By the time he snagged his two, the case was empty again.

blue bell is happiness

We’ve taste tested for all a’y’all out there, and we’re happy to report it’s just as delicious and as you can tell, above, made us feel great.  Bonus: I had a R44DCL, too.

Yay!

That’s all I’ve got.
